Meeting stringent environmental standards according to the ISO, the hotel has recently been awarded a carbon-neutral footprint. The commitment to sustainability extends from minimal emissions in rooms and suites to on-site restaurants serving thoughtful menus, including locally sourced ingredients at Berliner Stube and a certified organic breakfast at Parksalon. The Maluna Spa features a circular pool, sauna with cold plunge pools and splash showers and marine-based products from Thalgo for Thalasso. The overall feel blends clean design inside with a quiet parkside setting.
In the Area
The large, business-friendly Steigenberger attracts leisure guests for its versatile location in the western part of Berlin—it overlooks the quiet Los-Angeles-Platz private park but sits just a block down from the “Ku-damm”, or Kurfurstendamm, Berlin’s version of the Champs-Elysees, with Chanel, Gucci, YSL and more lining the avenue. Plus, there’s no shortage of cafes, restaurants, shops and galleries to explore in the immediate neighborhood. Sights within easy reach include the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and Zoo Berlin, while famed Tiergarten to the east offers more green space in a spectacular setting smack-dab in the urban center.
How to Get There
This hotel is situated near all the best shops and a variety of restaurants
There was an ample selection of food at breakfast..including honeycomb and lots of cheeses and fresh fruits.
The room was comfortable and clean
My flight arrived early in the morning and I'd travelled most of the night, but couldn't check in until 3pm....eventually after waiting in the lounge as I was too tired to go out..I checked in at 2 (which I appreciated). If the room is already available..which it was...why make me wait or pay an extra fee for early check in?....just let the customer check in early. It wont make a difference to you.
Other than the check in, I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would visit again if I'm in Berlin with my family. ????
There are both pros and cons during our stay at the hotel:
Good location. Very close to subway and train station. The hotel is located within 10-minute walk from Zoologische Garten station which has train to and from the airport. We were offered a travel card for public transport during our stay. Comfortable bed and quiet room. Breakfast was standardized and included enough varieties to choose from (unless if you stayed for the entire week which breakfast could get boring as your choices run out). The hotel has a sauna and swimming pool that you can use while staying here.
We upgraded to a larger room, agreed to pay extra and asked for a room with bath tube. However, we ended up waiting almost an hour after the promised check-in time by the receptionist to be told that our room was not ready, without any further explanation. They only gave us the room after I complained and demanded to speak to the manager. It is not worth extra money since what you get in return is mediocre customer service. We got a room without a bath tube and the Internet was not working. After another complaint, they finally changed us to another room.
Out of the hotels I've stayed in, this one has the saddest gym ever: there were only 2 treadmills, elliptical machines and bicycles. Nothing else. No weight, no equipment. If you use the gym here, you can either do cardio or some rolling or yoga on the crash mat in the gym. In addition, the facility wasn't clean. There were used towels around as well as paper.
The hotel it self is super great, however WE think that they should reconsider their prices for all the rest that they are providing :) We allready knew this before we went there, breakfast is 25 Euro pr.prs. and sorry, with 1362 breakfast café's in Berlin, you dont need to include that in your stay :) Just around the 4 corners of the hotel, you can find4-6 breakfast Places (Within a 3 minutes walk) and pay 10-20 Euro's for TWO prs. depending on what you order :) But hey, its a 5 star hotel, its supposed to have that pricerange, so nothing bad to say about the hotel it self. We are definately going Again :) And one last thing, noise on the hotel or from the streets!!! more or less, NONexsisting. A fantastic Hotel all in all, located smack in the middle of it all :)
